If there were a Shopping Olympics then I believe my mom-in-law would win a gold medal for the cool-yet-cheap-homeware-and-gadgets category (she also has inexhaustible energy when it comes to window shopping). When living in London she could sniff a bargain out at 50 yards, and I am always amazed to find new and fun kitchen and home ware items whenever we visit for a meal. I have certainly learnt some retail lessons from her, and am awfully proud to have sniffed out my very own home ware bargain spot. Poco Discount Home Megastore is a must-visit for bargain hunters, and those looking for pretty much all-things house under one roof!

Poco is a German discount home furnishings brand with over 100 stores world wide, and they recently opened their very first South African store in Strand. The benefit of the size and reach of this brand means that they are able to source both local and international items and sell them on at fantastically reduced prices. And the fact that you can pretty much kit out an entire house from one shop is very appealing, especially if shopping around is not your thing. The Poco warehouse accommodates a massive range of items, from lounge, dining and bedroom furniture, to textiles, soft furnishings, gardening implements, lighting and loads more (apparently there are over 11,000 items to choose from!) And there is an element of Ikea to it, where any and all furniture items are DIY assembly, or can be delivered and assembled by the Poco team (at an additional cost).

Items that caught my eye included a funky 4-shelf bookcase (R1699), a huge assortment of scatter cushions starting from around R30 each, Scandinavian-styled wardrobes with glide doors (from R5999), design your own kitchens (the retro red would have excited my eldest), and the lumo decor items which would be perfect when redecorating a child's bedroom. I must say that the lounge and dining room furniture wouldn't be my first choice, but I love the fact that they make a lounge suite so affordable. There is also a huge carpet section, a bed and mattress offering, as well as a kitchenware and baking area, with items ranging from crockery and cutlery, to plastic storage and loads more.

Poco are running a series of opening specials so the prices quoted above are correct at time of going to press, but may change. I suggest you also stay up to date with special offers and new stock on their Facebook page.
